I remember when I first hit that publish button at Amazon. I thought, "This is it! Everyone's going to see my book, and I'll make a ton of sales!"
And do you know what happened? Nothing. Nada.
I know the pain of logging in to my dashboard and seeing zero sales for the week, or for the entire month. I kept wondering what I could do to have my book seen, and more importantly, reach readers who would appreciate what I had to share. Since then, I've learned that not only did I need to bring my passion to indie publishing, but also a smart marketing plan. Since then, I've not only become an Amazon bestselling author with over 10,000 ebooks sold, as well as a bestseller at B&N, Kobo, and iBooks, but I've also learned what NOT to do when publishing and promoting my books and how to actually make sales.
And, I believe you can do the same.
The Indie Author Mastermind online course provides a simple, actionable plan to jumpstarting your book promotion and building your author platform--two very important elements for indie authors who wish to have visibility with online retailers and gain a thriving reader fan base.
